Robert S. Bernstein Named 2006 Pennsylvania Super Lawyer
Pittsburgh, PA – Robert S. Bernstein, managing partner of Bernstein-Burkley, P.C., has been named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer for the year of 2006. This prestigious award goes out to only the top 5 percent of lawyers in Pennsylvania, and Bernstein has now been honored with it for three years in a row.
“It is quite an honor to represent Bernstein-Burkley, P.C. in this manner,” says Bernstein. “Our firm works very hard to uphold the highest standards of the practice and to offer innovative, value-added services to our clients. It’s gratifying to know that our efforts are recognized within the profession.”
Achieving Super Lawyer status involves a six-month-long, multi-step process in which Pennsylvania lawyers name the best lawyers they have observed in action over the year. Next, candidates are reviewed by a panel of prominent Pennsylvania attorneys, and finally, by an independent research group also led by attorneys.
The Super Lawyer award is sponsored jointly between Philadelphia Magazine and Law & Politics Magazine.
Bernstein-Burkley, P.C., is a family-owned and managed law firm with a 35-year history of providing expert counsel to clients throughout the country in the areas of creditors’ rights, bankruptcy, retail and commercial collections, lease enforcement, and mortgage foreclosure. In addition, the firm maintains expertise in the areas of banking, administrative, real estate, civil, business, and appellate law.
Known primarily for its creditors’ rights practice, Bernstein has more board-certified creditors’ rights specialists in Pennsylvania than any other firm. It provides a spectrum of specialized services to clients seeking guidance on all credit issues – bankruptcy, retail and commercial collections, and mortgage foreclosure work.
Recent innovations at Bernstein-Burkley, P.C. include its proprietary Expedited Foreclosure System©, which provides mortgage lenders with fast, efficient, and guaranteed service in Pennsylvania. (The system shaves 60 days off the typical 270 days it takes foreclosures to be completed after placement with counsel.)
Firm lawyers have received board certifications in the areas of creditors’ rights and business bankruptcy and have held leadership posts in several related professional organizations, including the nationally respected ELA (Equipment Leasing Association), the CLLA
(Commercial Law League of America), and the Allegheny Bar Association.
This year, Robert Bernstein also serves as president of the American Board of Certification.
“We are working hard to anticipate and meet the changing needs of our clients,” he says. “Hopefully, this latest Super Lawyer designation will reaffirm and strengthen their trust in us to provide not only legal expertise but peace of mind.”
